Civil society groups have called for a march to take place on Wednesday, August 1, in Maseru. The march, which is coordinated with other protests held simultaneously in South Africa and Lesotho, is intended to bring attention to gender-based violence at the beginning of Women's Month. The march will begin at 09:00 (local time) at Setsoto Stadium, and will proceed to Moshoeshoe Road. A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are likely in the vicinity of the march. Additional information can be found on the march organizers' website.
Individuals in Maseru are advised to monitor developments to the situation, plan alternative routes, avoid all demonstrations and protests due to the risk of violence, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
